Blaze Pizza - Freret, New Orleans
The Good :
Friendly and fast service and some great flavors. The arugula fruit salad and the balsamic dressing were really good.
The Bad :
I hate how they yell “Welcome to Blaze. Have you ever been here before?” from the back of the restaurant. I don’t need everyone in the place knowing my customer status. If its that important – station someone at the front.
A quick fired pizza chain with a location on Freret featuring unlimited toppings for 1 price.
I’ve been here a few times. It is pretty consistent I have noticed. The review was my first time. The second time the pizza was crispier so maybe it being not so crispy the first time was a fluke.
The Arugula and fruit salad is one of my favorites here. Its fresh, the fruit is freshly cut and the blue cheese and balsamic vinaigrette makes a great combination.
I tend to go for the Meat Eater Pizza. Add BBQ. Because…BBQ makes everything better. It’s a good combination though I find their meatball texture a little weird… each their own I suppose.
They have some great fresh made natural drink options. I prefer the blood orange lemonade but I hear the fruit punch is great too.
The best part I find is that you can now order a half pizza and half salad for $8.95. Unlimited toppings on the pizza…soooo. Yah. And for me, this could feed two. I don’t have a huge appetite, but I could make it work.
